    The Perfect Storm:
      Anchored to the Skipper of souls, no matter how hard it blows, we have no fears with Jesus on our side. That is the "Perfect Storm!"

    Sister Mary Lucy Astuto   In her column this week, Sister Mary Lucy Astuto forecasts what is truly "The Perfect Storm." The weather patterns have changed greatly throughout the world over the past several years and the drought in the midwest seems to be breaking with torrential rains. Sister reminds us that just as Jesus quieted the storm at sea for His Apostles, so He can and will quell the storms that rock our lives whether physical or spiritual. He didn't die on the cross to let us get washed away on the tide of eternal damnation. No, He died so He could be for us that Anchor of Hope to keep us from dashing our finite hulls against the dangerous reefs of life. Therefore, He provides the "perfect storm" for we will never perish if we totally depend on him as the Skipper of our souls. For her column, entitled The storms of life! see GETTING TO THE HEART OF THE MATTER


Appreciation of the Great Commandmants
    Today we continue our series in the search to uncover the wonderful treasures of the Church contained in the great Deposit of Faith. We present the first of a two part catechesis on the Great Commandments as explained in My Catholic Faith and how these summarize the Ten Commandments given to Moses and made simpler by Our Lord in Matthew 22: 36-39. For part one in the 181st installment, see APPRECIATING THE PRECIOUS GIFT OF OUR FAITH
